All new world-class unnecessary fuss. 'Poetic, clever and joyfully freewheeling' (Chortle.co.uk). A massive hit in the hemisphere with which he shares a name, Southern has crafted a lovely show full of proper jokes, but bags of spontaneous nonsense too. 'Very Funny' (Daily Mirror). 'Top class all round' (Sunday Times). 'Wins big laughs with every punchline' (Herald Sun, Melbourne). 'His spontaneous humour and interaction with the audience had people in stitches' **** (Adelaide Advertiser). Total sell-out Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013.

Full press release
International word clown Gordon Southern returns to Edinburgh in 2013 with his brand new show The Kerfuffle. Having already toured it extensively in the hemisphere with which he shares a name, The Kerfuffle enjoyed many sell out nights in Adelaide, Wellington and Auckland and sold out the entire season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, with rave reviews everywhere he went.
This show is an hour of big laughs that also manages to muse on mortality, national identity and what the recession is really doing to people in 2013.
Sharply observational and endearingly shambolic, The Kerfuffle combines mesmerizing storytelling with a free jazz aesthetic, Southern is one of the best comics around when it comes to good natured riffing with the audience. Delivered with an infectious energy that draws the crowd into a giddy hour of laughter and lightning fast banter... and maybe just a few more of those raps.
His 2012 show A Brief History of History, was nominated for Best International Act at the New Zealand Comedy Festival, and in the Edinburgh Fringe it was selected in the Top 10 of the Amused Moose Awards. This show also enjoyed sold out seasons across Australia, and continues to tour around the world.
He has appeared on Good News Week and Standup Australia, as well as countless UK TV and radio shows. Last year Gordon has completed his first tour of New Zealand with the coveted Comedy Convoy, and -fun fact- headlined the first ever Serbian comedy festival in Belgrade.
